So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away. Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:10-11 NLT
Our daily lives should evidence our professed faith in Jesus. When we display moral excellence, patient endurance, brotherly love, and even love our enemies, we portray our Father and Lord. Living by God's principles (The Bible) helps us stand unshakable in an uncertain world. God's Word is eternal - it will never fail us. “Your eternal word, O Lord, stands firm in heaven.” Psalms 119:89 NLT “Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.” Luke 21:33 NLT ““Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”” Matthew 7:24-27 NLT Living your life without the principles of Jesus Christ is like building a house on sand knowing that a catastrophic storm will someday come. In just a matter of time, the house will fall. Don't build your life on anything other than Jesus and His Word!! For those who choose to build on Jesus and His Word, a grand entrance awaits you in the kingdom of God! Keep your eyes on eternity, not things that are fleeting and temporary.
